This is an attempt to solve a crash while redefining a class that has unresolved class references in its constant pool. I would appreciate some extra scrutiny here since I am unfamiliar with this code path.

I have also added a test that causes a JVM crash without the fix. 

The updates to the test library is all code copied from the jdk version of the test library.
